A new dawn of friction hinges has emerged. The reason for the major step in innovation is due to the availability of advanced engineering plastics which meet or exceed pure steel friction devices.  Also because of the emergence of rapid prototyping such as SLA and fused filament printing the design possibilities have opened widely.  Traditional friction hinges require hard tooling, heat treated components and various lubrication methods.  We can now use self lubricated polymers that have the performance and strength needed for a well engineered product.  Lead times are cut dramatically and changes to configurations can be made rapidly to accommodate design modifications.
